Ferrari ‘Green’ California to go on Show at Paris Show 8

Ferrari is all set to introduce a ‘green’ California model at the Paris Motor Show. Although there are not too many details available, some reports say the vehicle will not be a hybrid. Instead, they say it is most likely to feature an improved direct injection system with low friction engine components, multi-cylinder deactivation, and regenerative braking.

Although this does not really qualify the car to be labeled green, Ferrari is already on the green wagon with announcements coming in about their plans to reduce emissions by up to 40% and improve fuel efficiency 30% in comparison with 2007 levels.

This is seen as the outcome of the stricter government standards that have been responsible for axing the Honda Civic Type R and the Ford Focus ST. It is hoped that more details on the green California will emerge in the countdown to the Paris Show, if not, all will be revealed in the end of September!
